ABA Trial Team Advances to National Championship
Our ABA Trial Team, which consists of Kelle Redepenning, Anthony Wise, Kelsie Carson, and Joshua Rau and is coached by Brian Dodez (’09) competed in Boston this past weekend. Due to the inclement weather, their return flight was cancelled, so they rented a car, drove through the night, and arrived back in Cleveland today at 5 am. Despite the travel concerns, the team went undefeated and has advanced to the National Championship in the American Bar Association Section of Labor and Employment Law’s Ninth Annual Law Student Trial Advocacy Competition. This was the first time Akron participated in this tournament. Three of the advocates are 2Ls who have never been in a competition, and the other is a 3L who has tried one case in competition prior to this.
Please congratulate these students for an outstanding performance when you see them in the building this week.
